Going above and beyond for the greater good
Together&Beyond founder Yonatan Arnon and FoodChain co-founder Ditsa Keren discussed making a social impact with the help of tech at the recent JerusalemTech event
"Together&Beyond was founded in May 2020 due to Covid-19 as we realized that we are all suffering from the financial and economical challenges of the pandemic. We brought together Palestinian and Jews to think together how we can help each other in these difficult times," said Yonatan Arnon, founder of Together&Beyond, speaking at JerusalemTech.
Together&Beyond describes itself as "a cross cultural entrepreneurial community of Arabs, Palestinians and Jews" that are "grass-roots activists who have risen to the challenge of coming together to positively socially impact our communities in order to equip Jewish and Arab young adults with social entrepreneurial and professional tools."
Ditsa Keren, who co-founded FoodChain with a Palestinian partner, recently took part in the Together&Beyond social hackathon. "FoodChain connects businesses with surplus food and charities that are in need of food. We want to incentivize businesses to donate food so that it is beneficial for them through tax credit and other methods to make it beneficial to all involved."
